What is RSS?

September 6, 2010

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication.  If you bookmark a lot of websites, this button is a godsend!  This allows you to subscribe to your favorite websites and blogs. So instead of you remembering to check your favorite sites, you can have updates sent to you.

How to maximize RSS?

Clicking on the RSS button on a site gives you the option to subscribe via email. If you are like me, you don’t need more email showing up. The best way to use RSS is to get a Reader. There are plenty of FREE readers on the internet.  I use Google Reader, but there are others. A reader allows you to aggregate all your feeds in one place. Google Reader is now my home page and I can read the headlines of my favorite websites and blog posts.

A Reader also gives you the ability to create files, share with your followers and easily unsubscribe from a site. Many times when you click the RSS button, a list a readers appear.  Choose one and begin subscribing to your favorite sites.
